Wonderfully Twisted unites three bold artistic voices in an edgy exhibition that dances on the fringe of mainstream and alternative culture.

  1. Great post Sharon!! The opening was a great leap into new territory, and it was wonderful to see all those who were present, while offering an online experience for those who couldn’t attend. “New Normal” indeed.
